Not really a typo but the famous message from Nimitz to Halsey where the signalman accidentally left in the padding when he decoded it, changing the simple query "where is task force 34" into "where is task force 34, the world wonders" a bit more insulting than Nimitz was aiming for

After the 9-11 attacks, I saw a banner headline in a rural Nebraska weekly paper that read, "Bush declares war on tourism"

Imagine you are the editor of that paper. This is the biggest story since the Kennedy assassination, you get one chance to write the headline and you write tourism instead of terrorism.

Happens to everyone. Even Nostradamus accidentally wrote "Hister" instead of "Hitler."

That's Sofa King Cool...

This was my favorite:

In 1962, a typo by a NASA programmer resulted in Mariner 1 being sent into the ocean rather than to its intended location, Venus. The cause was a missing hyphen.

...Whoops!

Followed closely buy the Sesame Street one, but the irony of your catch is pretty goddamn god.

Comments on that site aren't working for me(Either AdBlock or Chrome). Anyway, did anyone on the site point out the actual typo in the article that the farker upthread just found? I'm just curious if they're living it in on purpose or if they don't know about it yet.

Having lived in NC for several years, I've noticed a lot of people pronouncing the name of the State with 4 syllables.

Not typos per say, but more lighting mistakes.  A grocery store near where I grew up was called Town & Country, and it had the name in giant red letters on the front of the store.  At night they were lit up.  On one occasion the O and R were burnt out from CoUNTrY.  Wish I had taken a picture of it.  Along the same lines I've seen the C in Stone Cold Creamery burnt out before.

//CSB - saw (and was responsible for a few good typos) on local news.  One was I spelled dikes dykes in a story about Holland and it was CG'd as "Shoring up the dykes" over a few women.  Another one was where we would get "placeholder" text until we got final text.  In the initial writeup for a sports story the placeholder for a person being interviewed was "Old Dude".  Never got corrected so he was supered as Old Dude.

The "S" in a local Shoe City has been burnt out for so long everyone I know, including employees, call it Hoe City.
